The old Marmalade in Rolling Hills Estates was replaced by El Pollo Inka, a Peruvian restaurant chain. Though there is one not too far from it on Hawthorne Blvd. in Torrance, this would be a big convenience to the people in Palos Verdes so they would not have to go down the hill. Not too many good restaurants last on this hill.
A friend and I happened to be in the area so we decided to go for it. We had no idea what was good so we just studied the menu and ordered our food very scientifically based on the mouth watering pictures.
Lee ordered the Vainita de Pollo; lean chicken sauteed with French cut green beans, onions and tomatoes, served with rice. It looked a bit too healthy for me. She did like it though. Her entree included an Aguadito soup which is chicken & rice with cilantro, also very good. I had the Bisteck Montado; steak topped with fried egg and plantains served with rice. It was a good choice. I loved the flavorful steak and the sweet fried bananas. They did serve us some rolls with butter. Nothing special but we were happy since we both were starving.
No dessert was ordered since we didn't have time for it. There's always a next time unless of course this restaurant vanishes before it's time! (I should hope not as the peninsula needs restaurants badly.)
El Pollo Inka is located at 550 Deep Valley Dr. in Rolling Hills Estates in the Promenade in the Peninsula.
